IMPROVE HEALTHCARE OUTCOMES AND LOWER COSTS
A portable ultrasound that helps providers accelerate treatment decisions at the point of care.
Vscan Extend™: All-in-one dual-probe system
Increase diagnostic accuracy
The use of Pocket-Size Handheld echocardiographic devices after brief bedside training greatly improved the clinical diagnosis of medical students and junior doctors. ¹
Expedite confident decision-making.
Residents with limited training in cardiac ultrasound were able to identify LVSD in patients with superb accuracy and confirm findings 22 hours before the availability of formal echocardiography results.²
Reduce the need for extra tests.
After a short training course, a pocket-sized ultrasound device examination in addition to a physical exam can improve the answer to 10 common clinical questions and reduce the need for further testing.³
Increase the quality of referrals.
Vscan Extend provides additional clues during the physical exam n just a few short minutes of scanning to increase the quality of referrals and improve your patient’s overall experience.

Vscan Extend Apps to Empower your Care
GE Healthcare has partnered with DiA Imaging Analysis, Ltd. to provide the LVivo EF app. It calculates ejection fraction, end-systolic and end-diastolic left ventricular volumes by automated edge detection of the left myocardial wall using apical 4-chamber views.
Supports image storage, collaboration, and EMR integration using Tricefy’s cloud-based solution. Tricefy Uplink app supports easy export of selected images, videos or exams to Tricefy to support ultrasound case communication and collaboration over the cloud. Tricefy is a cloud-based solution from Trice Imaging.
Enables automated TGC (time gain compensation) with a single key stroke during live scanning. Gain will be automatically adjusted for all depths.
A flexible, protocol enabled measurement tool for calculating urinary bladder volumes. It can be used anytime during a scan.
Navigates you through a systematic lung ultrasound exam. It automatically activates your scanning preset and annotates each image during the lung exam.
Provides the M-Mode capability specifically to support lung assessment and documentation of signs like seashore.
Scan Coach RHD
Provides a protocol to help you obtain images and data to assess the presence of RHD disease in the path to determining treatment options.
Scan Coach FATE
Provides a protocol of standard ultrasound imaging views and context-based reference materials to perform a systematic FATE exam.
Scan Coach FCU
Provides a protocol of standard ultrasound imaging views and context-based reference materials to perform a systematic evaluation of the heart.
Create a customized exam script that will help ensure exam consistency by guiding you through an ultrasound image acquisition protocol.
Wirelessly exported jpg files and mpg clips can be complemented by patient identifier and scan information, as recommended by ultrasound documentation standards such as AIUM and DEGUM.
Mirror the display of the Vscan Extend onto a wireless display via Miracast. You will have the ability to share and collaborate with other healthcare providers and patients.
